Hiding page number on the cover page

Microsoft Office Word Docmanagement

I am trying to hide the page number on the cover page and have tried several 
things already and nothing has worked. I have begun the page number to start 
on page 2 but instead of starting it with page 1 it begins with page 2. 

I need some help.
Hi proxzimus,

You could set your document up with a 'different first page', then insert the page # field into the 2nd page footer only, formatting 
the page # to start from 1.
